Sources tell™ that filming has started again today (Thursday, January 20th) following the Christmas break. Ian McKellen (Gandalf) is now in NZ as well as Elijah Wood (Frodo), Viggo Mortensen (Aragorn), John Rhys-Davies (Gimli) and the rest of the Hobbits with the exception of Ian Holm (Bilbo) who is scheduled to arrive in February. My contacts in the Liv Tyler (Arwen) camp could not confirm if she will be returning to NZ, or if she is done for a while yet.
